A textbook and a classic in its seventh edition. Quite comprehensive and readable. My favourite was chapter 15.7 - "Investments in human capital". I'm from Austria and here it isn't common knowledge that you have to invest time and money into getting an education, and that this human capital has to pay off. We also lack the understanding, that a degree is essentially a mean of communication for communicating quality to the employer. Both points are covered in this textbook.
The last two chapter,

Unlike most texts in economics, this one is neither full of abstract equations nor is it completely devoid of them. This book balances both intuition and the math underlying economic phenomena. However, that is not all. As a student, I always wondered whether it is really possible to implement the concepts in practice. This book shows you how to do that by giving many examples from the real world. Whether you want to understand why tariffs are the lesser evil vis-a-vis quotas or how P&G will ...more

I want to read
Organization of the books is good. Topics are discussed with enough clarity and each topic comes with lots of graphs and illustrations (which I think are a great help at that level). The level of algebra and math is at an intermediate undergraduate level (economics major). I think it is a complete book for anybody who wants to have an understanding of microeconomics. I am a Ph.D. student of economics now and if I am going to teach an undergrad micro course, I will certainly choose this textbook.
C'est simplement le meilleur manuel de microéconomie, comme souvent avec les manuels Américains. Il est plus long que les manuels écrits par des profs Français et donc plus chers, mais il est très pédagogique et utilise souvent une méthode inductive (comme souvent avec les manuels Américains) ce qui permet d'introduire facilement des concepts obscurs. Je le recommande chaudement.
We don't get that much mileage out of this book in 15.010. The descriptions are good, the layout it nice, but I think I may have been just as well-served by not getting the book in the first place.
I have to read these book every single week so I think I'm memorizing it....
Still it has some mistakes or it doesn't explain very clear some subjects.

A Good Microeconomics Text book, more for a Under Graduate Students than for Managers
Would recommend to anyone interested in the principal lies.
